Things to consider when Buying a Refrigerator

Looking for a new refrigerator? Here are a few simple questions to ask before deciding what to buy.


What size space do you have available?

• Customers should make sure to measure the width, depth and height of the space where their new refrigerator will be placed.

• In the past, people with smaller cut-outs leaned toward top freezers. However,

options that include smaller versions of side-by-sides, bottom freezers and French-door bottom freezers are available.

• Counter-depth models are designed to be flush with countertops to provide a sleek, built-in appearance. These models are also the perfect solution for kitchens with a limited cutout depth, saving up to 5” of valuable floor space.

Do you and/or your family eat more frozen foods or fresh foods?

• If you eat more frozen foods, you will want a freezer that is easy to access and has a large capacity. Top freezers and side-by sides might be better options. Be aware that the freezer compartment in a side-by-side is narrower.

• Customers who eat more fresh foods may want a fresh food section that has more capacity. Bottom freezers keep all fresh foods at a higher level for easy reach and allow for the storage of wide items like deli trays.

Does your family eat a lot of fruits and vegetables?

• If yes, then you may want features like humidity-controlled crispers or dual evaporators that help keep fruits and vegetables fresh. Some Kenmore Elite side by- side models offer Fresh ’N Ready bins for easy access to produce on the door.

Do you want to get water and/or ice from the refrigerator without opening the door?

• Almost all side-by-sides and most bottom freezers provide filtered water from the door. Few top freezers provide this feature.

Is styling important to you?

• If you want a built-in look, you may want a counter-depth, side-by-side or bottom freezer. These models have less depth, leaving the cabinet flush with the countertops, but have slightly less capacity.

• External dispensers on certain models have a more integrated look with the refrigerator door.

• Some models have smooth, contoured doors.

• Some models have longer doors that hide the hinges.

Are you concerned about energy consumption?

• You may want to select a refrigerator that is designated as ENERG Y STAR® qualified. These models are at least 20% more energy efficient than the Department of Energy standard and can provide significant savings over the life of the refrigerator.

Types of Refrigerators and Their Benefits

There are many options to choose from when buying a new refrigerator. This article will give you a quick overview of the different types and the benefits of each.

Top freezer

• Tend to be narrower than side-by-sides of comparable cubic foot capacity (29”-33”), but have a wider door‑swing.

• Offer a tremendous amount of storage versatility.

• Wide items (such as pizza boxes, deli trays and roasting pans) tend to fit more easily in a top freezer model.

• Typically, top freezer models cost less than side-by-sides and are more energy efficient

Bottom freezer

• Pull-out and glide-out features make it easier for you to see, reach and organize foods stored in the freezer.

• Fresh foods are stored at a more convenient height, making them easier to see and reach.

French Door

• The unique armoire doors in this bottom freezer model eliminate the center bar found in other side-by-side models.

• The French Door refrigerator has a larger freezer capacity than any other bottom-freezer model.

• This refrigerator is great for customers with a smaller kitchen or an island since the door opening is so much smaller.


• Tend to be wider than other refrigerators


• Full-height freezer next to a full-height refrigerator (66”-70”).

• Ice and water dispensers are available on most side-by-side models with water filtration.

• Fresh and frozen foods are stored at a convenient height, making them easy to see and reach.

• Come in larger maximum storage capacities.

• Tend to have a wider range of features to enhance performance and convenience.

Counter Depth Side-By-Side

• The built-in look without the built-in price. Over 5”‑shallower than similar width side by sides, fits flush with kitchen counters. This free standing unit can plug into any standard outlet.

Brigit was the best sales associate I've worked with in a long time. Her level of customer service satisfaction are rare in most retail stores in this day and age; especially in outlet stores. She was friendly and VERY knowledgable about the options and features for the fridges in stock. She went the extra mile to look for a counter depth french door model that would suit my personal needs and was extremely patient even after I told her I would have to return to the store (for a 3rd time) because I left my wallet at home. She was professional and made me feel comfortable about the purchase I was making. She is a great asset to the Sears Outlet Store and I will definitely be back to work with her again for future purchases!!!!
